The space

The Cabin is a beautiful, welcoming natural space that is always warm and bright. Situated on the famous walking path; The Goats Path and The Wild Atlantic Way. The cabin is off the main road and enjoys a peaceful and tranquil setting overlooking the sea. It is within two miles of Bantry and one mile from The Westlodge Hotel and Leisure Centre.

Guest access

The house is fully detached and is on a quiet road less than five minutes drive from Bantry town centre, where there are shops, pubs, restaurants, banks, a cinema and a very good outdoor market every Friday. Our house where we live is just next door, so if you need anything from a bowl of sugar to advice on where to go and what to do, we're right here! There is also secure parking and storage space in our garage for bikes/strollers etc.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to show you around and we have two little girls that are aged five and three, they are full of life and joy. We also have a dog and a cat. The cat is never in the cabin. You can help yourself to salad and whatever is growing in the polytunnels and around the garden.

The neighbourhood

Our neighbourhood is so nice and peaceful, we are on the Beach/Dromcloc road which is adjacent to the main road, which means we don't have the traffic of other roads. A ten minute scenic walk in one direction and you arrive at the airstrip with it's breathtaking views and ocean-side walk into town. Whilst going five to ten minutes in the opposite direction you arrive at a secluded seaside beach fed by an ambling river. You couldn't ask for more.

Getting around

There is a regular bus service, Bus Eireann 236, between Bantry, and Cork. If we are home(Which we usually are) we would be happy to drop you into town. Taxi service to our house from a local taxi service is €5 should we not be available and you have no transport. It's also a lovely and scenic 35 minutes walk! :-)
We have two bicycles that you are more than welcome to use, we also have a chariot to attach to the back if you have kids, or seats that attach to the bike frame and two helmets for the children.

Amazing experience, lovely hosts. The place is even better than the pictures. Great spot to disconnect from the rest of the world. I'd love to come back and would definitely recommend to everyone. Thanks Irene & Bean!

Bean and Irene's place is located in a beautiful spot, with spectacular views of Bantry Bay! The beach hut is very comfortable and nicely furnished and the town is just a short drive away. Our hosts were very friendly throughout our stay, a very welcoming atmosphere about the place and we hope to visit again soon!

This place is breathtaking! Our whole group wishes we could have stayed here for our entire trip to Ireland. The view is just incredible. On top of the amazing view, Irene and her family are wonderful people and the house is so fun! I really could go on for days about how great this place was. Thanks, Irene, for a wonderful stay with you, your family, and your sweet pets in your little slice of paradise :)

Beautiful views over Bantry Bay and very comfortable for our family of 4. We loved walking down to the beach with the very friendly dogs and sitting out on the patio on a sunny day looking out over the bay. Also liked that it was a quick drive to Bantry. Bantry house was beautiful to explore and we were there for the market day in Bantry. Highly recommend! Thank you Bean and Irene!

I am a full-time musician and my partner is a Yoga teacher. We moved to West Cork in 2013 and we love it here! Such a beautiful part of the world, there is so much to see and do here. We love having people come stay in our chalet. We live next door in a cosy little cottage with our two little girls Niamh and Jean, a very friendly dog called Goggy and a quiet cat called Hummus. We all really enjoy having people about.
